    So much for preorders going up Wednesday. They must've been bombarded by e-mails this weekend and figured they shouldn't wait any longer.:lol

    Oh how I love the automatic assumption that BBTS will have inflated prices. At least half their new pre-orders are less than TRUs prices (Voyagers for 24.99 for example).

    Otherwise, cool to see the POs early, too bad there is no Soundwave individual PO though. Oh well I'll just wait to see him in store.

    Im not paying $20 for wheeljack. And no option to buy soundwave alone is fuckin weak. Case packs are 3 BBs, 2 CJs, 2 WJs and 1 SW? Goddamnit. Enough with the damn bee...why can't they just give them an equal amount in the breakdown? There won't be a shortage of Bees, and I am sure he will get more molds or decos than most anyway.

    Oh well, whatever.

    I like how they have selective pricing on deluxes. Fuck that. Seriously.

    I just ordered the set of 4 Deluxe figures along with the Megatron and Optimus Voyagers.

    Still cheaper then TRU and wasting gas to go drive out there to even see if they have any at all.

    They converted my preorder of FE case of four [BB, Arcee Starscream and Cliffjumper] to a case of four RID wave 1.

    Pricing seems to have gone up. They said they'll honour my price lock on 59.99 for a case of four instead of the 64.99.

    Anybody else noticed an irregularity with their preorder page? I swear I had two items on my preorders I cancelled months ago...

    I know this may be a little dumb, but what is the difference between Bot Shots and Robots In Disguise Cyberverse--and how do these relate to the much-maligned RID figures and the FE figures? I'm pretty much lost without pictures.

    If anyone is really worried about Soundwave...remember he's in Wave 1. He'll PROBABLY be in the revision case right after wave 2, and he'll probably even be in the Wave 2 assortment. Don't we all know that wave 1 figures tend to be over-ordered and move the slowest of the first year of toys? Give it a month or two and people won't have a hard time getting Soundwave.

    I'm not going to bash them for that. They will sell 1/3 of those BBs at full price, the rest will sit on clearance forever. Those case assortments are toxic to a retailer that caters to informed adult collectors.

    Just a suggestion to better help my fandom comrades here. =)

    I agree. As a retailer that caters to a niche market like BBTS does they can't afford to really have so much stock on hand that won't even go at clearance prices. I wished sometimes people understood this point. It's done so the retailer has a way to manage such things without being swamped with stuff no one wants to buy.

    BLAME HASBRO FOR CASE ASSORTMENTS!

    Well they converted my order to RID items, and I immediately canceled my pre-order. Guess I can ship my last POL.

    I know they have probably been bombarded by e-mails, but I sent one regarding the Entertainment pack since it's still in my preorder list and the e-mail they sent didn't reference it, it only referenced the e-mail about my FE Voyagers.
